I just want to thank fate for putting us in each other’s lives — I couldn’t have asked for a better time for you to pop up in my life. You’ve become such a large part in my life in such a small amount of time, and I can’t thank you enough for not being annoyed by my double or even triple texts.

But more importantly, I’m sorry that I can’t physically be there when you need someone to cry with you or just to hug (although at times a virtual hug can suffice). There’s nothing like a warm embrace from someone who cares about you. I’m sorry that you feel so alone sometimes and so unsure of yourself. I’m sorry that I’m not there to tell you in person how amazing and how incredible your smile is when you don’t feel confident. I’m sorry that I’m not there when you need me.

Thank you for always being a constant support system in my life, especially during times when I feel like a burden to my friends at school. You’ve lifted me up in ways indescribable with words. It’s insane how a simple text from you can make my heart do a back flip. Thank you for always understanding my mentality when it feels like no one else does. Thank you for always telling me I’m pretty when I don’t feel pretty but always making sure you reply when you know something’s going on. Thank you for your taste in music and giving me song suggestions. It lets me in on what you’ve been thinking about. Shout out to Peyton and Parker for always "giving me life."

You’ve made such a large impact on my life in such a small amount of time. It’s crazy to think about the sort of connection we share. I’ve only met a few people that I can talk to every single day and never tire to the words they use or how they speak. The language you use when you text gives me every emotion that I could ever ask for out of you.

I love you and all your quirks. I couldn’t be more grateful to have someone like you play such a large role in the growth in my character. Most importantly, I can’t wait to see you.
